A gorgeous couple, a beautiful location and a wonderful crew to help make it all perfect.

You may recognize both Erica & Ari from their engagement session we shot at the Griffith observatory and the LACMA. This couple is so much fun to photograph, good energy, chemistry and tasteful style for days.

Erica looked stunning in her Oscar De La Renta wedding dress and Ari swept her off her feet with his dashing good looks and charm. It really was a great day to be a photographer.

It was a pleasure working with the talented Alyse Sobel of Alyse Sobel Events & Consulting as well as her entire staff. So professional and productive.

Julie Hill and her crew from Elysium Productions were filming the whole day, we LOVE working alongside them. Its so great to work with another crew that is polite,responsive and extremely good at their craft. Thanks for such a great

And wait until you see the ballroom! It may be the most tweeted/instagram’d/Written about ballroom of the year. Crystals hanging from the ceiling and intricately placed ribbions. Rumor has it the crystals took one week for 3 women working as a team to put up. WOW!

I hope you enjoy these images from one of the most beautiful weddings this year has seen.
